    Lyrics

    feat. Amerie
    (Royce talking)
    Come here Royce

    (Royce talking over chorus)
    Come over here, sit down, let me talk to you
    Right here, over here
    Sit on daddy's lap
    I want to tell you something

    (Chorus: Amerie) [Royce]

    Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place
    [This is life]
    Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place

    [Royce]
    Listen, yo
    Little Royce Nickel Nine, eyes wide with sight
    With a future as bright as the light in the eyes of Christ
    Ready to take on the world and whatever is in it
    Proof read, sign, and seal whatever you finish
    I can only lead you while you're on your quest for knowledge
    I'ma teach you to have sense and to respect the dollar
    Hope for the best, and you'll see, your world will be solid
    I'ma teach you the truth, even behind worldly logic
    This is life, cut and dry, days is bright, nights is dark
    Fights get sparked, it's almost like to get ahead
    You got to be twice as smart, the realities of life is harsh
    Just know that God's keeping you level
    He'll even speak through the ghetto to reach you
    Just to teach you that the streets is the devil
    Everybody's dishonest, different
    Which means that we're dying by livin'
    Oblivious to the time that we're given
    So you don't prepare for the death, you live for the life
    And live right like, do right by your kids and your wife
    Have fun as a child, yo them years is precious
    The future brings fear and stresses as the year progresses
    You're gonna turn a lot of them down, you're gonna feel rejection
    You're gonna tell a lot of lies and you're gonna hear confessions
    It's a two way street when you deal in his presence
    Only your life can show that everything is real in this message
    This is life

    (Chorus: Amerie) [Royce]

    Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place
    [This is life]
    Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place

    [Royce]
    Yo, the whole world is upon you, the pressure is on
    And you can probably sum your life up the best when you're gone
    Upon the creation of all men, destiny's born
    For us to reproduce, so you can keep the legacy goin'
    I know you think I'm Superman, but I got weaknesses too
    I keep a firm leash on things by believing in you
    And after I'm gone I live on breathing through you
    And anything I had in this life, I leave it to you
    Aim for the sky and fly till you come back down
    I had you the baton and you run, till you come back 'round
    Let your heart tell your temper, "Put that gun back down!"
    Dry your tears up and turn that frown upside-down
    It'd be plenty to cry for, think life, not death
    You got much more to live for than to die for
    But you got to stay humble
    Cause just as hard as your work to get it
    There's people working harder to take it from you
    Cause life, something that people take for granted
    As time passes, you're gonna want something back
    But you won't get it cause history is made every second
    So you crave every lesson and save every blessin'
    No matter how you view the world yo, you never will get it
    The world will be the world through the eyes of whoever is in it
    But things ain't gonna always go right
    Look at it like, yo this ain't your day, but this your life, and live
    Life

    (Chorus: Amerie) [Royce]

    Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place
    [This is life]
    Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place

    [Amerie]
    There will be trials and tribulations
    But don't let them, don't let them, don't let them bring you down
    I said you better keep going to your destination
    After your darkest hour the sun will come around

    (Royce talking)
    This is life
    Yo I don't care, I don't care if this song don't sell one copy
    That's not even what it's for
    It's for you, my boy
    This is life

    (Amerie singing in the background)
    You gotta keep going on, you gotta keep moving on
    Be strong, be strong, be strong
    Cause this is life
